AWAKENING NEW POSSIBILITIES ... helping people develop the skills and capabilities for the #futureofwork and asking better questions that connect people to people, planet, and purpose.
My name is Anjali and my deepest joy comes from helping organizations, teams, and individuals realize their potential, and build agility and resilience by sharing practical, pragmatic Design Thinking, and Lean and Agile mindset, practices and processes.
My extensive engagements with companies from startups to Fortune 500s equip me with unique insight into the challenges of maintaining the right balance between discipline and flexibility—balance that is essential for maintaining a competitive edge today and thriving in a fast changing world.
My coaching, training and consulting practice specializes in using principles and practices that ignite curiosity, create connection, facilitate co-creation, leverage wisdom networks, and embrace 'eco-vitalized being' to create valuable, innovative and purposeful solutions for all stakeholders with a broader and bolder win-6 attitude. Often working with creative collaborators, I use a unique and comprehensive framework—the PPL Agility and Resilience Navigator—to help individuals and organizations thrive by understanding and learning how to navigate the powerful cultural shifts occurring in business and society today.
My strength and success as an Agile Leader and Catalyst for Change began with a strong technical foundation in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Summa Cum Laude, Drexel University). Since then, my passion and curiosity about people, processes, and organizations have grown and expanded broadly through extensive product and project management roles, training, certifications, and diverse consulting experiences.
I hold certifications as a PMP (Project Management Professional), CSM (Certified Scrum Master), CSPO (Certified Scrum Product Owner), CSP (Certified Scrum Professional), SPC (Scaled Agile Academy), PSK (Scrum with Kanban from Scrum.org) and KMP 1(Lean Kanban University). I am also a recognized Agile Team Facilitator and Certified Agile Coach through the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile).
As a professional coach, I am co-active trained from the acclaimed Coach's Training Institute and an accredited GCologist and GCIndex partner. I am also accredited to conduct the Leadership Agility 360 assessment.
I am an international speaker and an active Agile Community Organizer. I founded the thriving Empowering South Florida Women in Agile organization and served on the program team for the Women in Agile - Seeding Local Communities initiative, the leadership team of Agile Open Florida, and chair the Agile Track for ITPalooza.
When not immersed in something ‘Agile related,’ I enjoy traveling with my husband and daughter, cooking multi-cultural cuisine, and practicing yoga and meditation.
